Sutherland House New Years Murder Mystery WeekendLooking for a fun and exciting way to ring in the New Year? Come catch a killer at the second annual Sutherland House New Year’s Murder Mystery Weekend. December 30th, 2017 to Monday, January 1st, 2018 at our Canandaigua B&B!

The Sutherland House New Year’s Murder Mystery Weekend is back by popular demand, and you can take part! There are many ways to celebrate the arrival of the new year but so many of them are just, well, typical. Take your New Year’s Eve out of the ordinary by solving a fun and exciting mystery at our historic, Finger Lakes B&B.

During the 2017/2018 New Year’s weekend, Sutherland House will transform into “The Juice Joint,” a swanky speakeasy and inn celebrating New Year’s Eve, 1925. Prohibition and organized crime set the scene as the social elite gather at The Juice Joint to ring in the New Year. What dastardly crime will befoul their celebratory plans? Who is the intended victim and, more importantly – who dunnit?

The Sutherland House New Year’s Murder Mystery Weekend is your chance to step back in time, as well as into a different character. Mobsters, molls, swanky singers, crooked police and more. Murder Mystery Weekend guests are encouraged to dress up for their roles. We will be giving out Best Actor and Best Costume awards at the weekend’s conclusion.

Each guest will receive a sealed envelope containing all they need to know to play their character and part in the mystery. Sutherland House will direct the game and help to keep it flowing smoothly throughout the weekend. All you really need to play is a sense of fun and a detective mindset.

The game begins Saturday evening and continues throughout the weekend with plenty of breaks to sight see, shop, or just relax. Midnight, Sunday, of course, the celebration will turn to ringing in the New Year. Monday morning we’ll make our accusations before the Chief Inspector and unravel the mystery.

The New Year’s Murder Mystery Weekend Includes:

  • Hors d’oeuvre and complimentary wine reception Saturday evening
  • Formal candlelight dinner Sunday evening (New Year’s Eve)
  • Complimentary champagne toast with party favors at midnight
  • Gourmet breakfasts both Sunday and Monday (New Year’s Day) morning
